    RAW Five-Point Review:
    The WWE Universe is still reeling from last week’s massive shake-ups that saw Batista quit WWE, Seth Rollins turn on his Shield compatriots and Daniel Bryan’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship reign come under fire once again. The questions continue to multiply as we approach this week’s Raw, live in Minneapolis. Here are five to focus on.

    1. Will Ambrose & Reigns attain retribution?:
    Less than 24 hours after putting his body and career on the line in a hellacious six-man battle against Evolution at WWE Payback — a clash The Shield won decisively, by the way — Seth Rollins and a few well-timed steel chair strikes obliterated one of the most dominant factions in all of sports-entertainment history.

    Those hoping for some sort of explanation from The Architect himself were left disappointed on SmackDown, when Rollins told the WWE Universe that the only person who needs to know why he turned his back on his brothers is himself.

    As Triple H said in his exclusive WWE.com interview on Wednesday, the calculating Rollins was long considered the “brains” of The Shield, so how will Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns fare without him? We’ll hopefully get an answer to that question from the remaining Hounds of Justice when they appear on this week’s Raw.

    2. How healthy is Daniel Bryan?:
    Stephanie McMahon continues to force our injured WWE World Heavyweight Champion into difficult situations. Now, if the leader of the “Yes!” Movement is medically cleared to compete June 29 at WWE Money in the Bank, he must defend his illustrious title against Kane in a perilous Stretcher Match. If Bryan is not yet recovered from neck surgery at that time, the title will be vacated and, for the first time ever, will be put up for grabs in a monumental Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

    One week after Stephanie announced the two potential fates of the WWE World Heavyweight Title, she will officially address the health of its current bearer. What new information about Bryan’s condition will The Authority unearth?

    3. Who will enter the Money In The Bank ladder match?:
    Last Monday night, this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match began to take shape when Alberto Del Rio defeated Dolph Ziggler to become the first Superstar to qualify for the high-stakes bout. No stranger to Money in the Bank glory, having used a Money in the Bank victory to catapult himself to a WWE Championship victory in 2011, Del Rio faces an as-yet-unknown field of competition.

    Who will join Del Rio in this career-changing Ladder Match? Moreover, what will its participants be vying for, a WWE World Heavyweight Championship contract or the coveted title itself?

    4. Who will Damien Sandow be this week?:
    It’s no wonder why Damien Sandow was once confused for one of Adam Rose’s costumed “Rosebuds.” We’ve seen Sandow make a spectacle of himself as Magneto, Sherlock Holmes, Davy Crockett, Indiana Pacer Lance Stephenson and a rapper named D-Sizzle in recent weeks, making us wonder if the so-called “Intellectual Savior of the Masses” might need some “saving” himself.

    Then again, Sandow’s eccentric brand of live-action role-playing — LARPing for the uninitiated —is undeniably entertaining, even if it hasn’t necessarily translated to in-ring success. Maybe there’s an end-game to this bizarre fashion show that hasn’t been brought to light just yet. Regardless, we can’t wait to see who this verbose Superstar will channel next.

    5. How is Bray 'reborn'?:
    After Bray Wyatt’s disciples, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, defeated WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos in a non-title encounter on Raw — putting the swamp monsters in strong contention for the championships— The Eater of Worlds returned on SmackDown to deliver an unsettling message to the WWE Universe.

    “There’s nothing left to fear,” Wyatt said, speaking out for the first time since his Last Man Standing Match defeat to John Cena at WWE Payback. “Brothers and sisters, I am reborn. Join me.”

    Despite Cena’s hard-fought victory over “The Man of 1,000 Truths,” it appears as though The Wyatt Family is just as treacherous as ever. Perhaps the group’s most heinous horrors have yet to be unleashed.

  2. I hope Damien comes out looking like Prince.. Brock Lesnar would be pretty funny too.
  3. I didn't even think of Prince... oh man that would be great... and Prince just celebrated his 56th birthday a day or 2 ago so maybe go with something concerning that? That would be hilarious.
  4. So i'm guessing you didn't get my PM last night. Oh well.
  5. No I didn't:
  6. I was just about to add an edit to my post, i PM'd Trip not you. Whips.
  7. That's my prediction on who he'll pop out as, that's like the #1 famous person all my Minnesota relatives bring up when talking about famous people from our state.
    • Disagree Disagree x 1
  8. He's gotta go with Prince from his Revolution days...maybe even sing a little Purple Rain lol
  9. Lol I'm curious as to why my post was disagreed with, idgaf about the rating itself but who is more famous out of Minnesota than Prince?
  10. how the hell is he the guy everyone quotes for these dirtsheets? Leave your posts open to interpretation, and you're never wrong?

    He should get a job writing conspiracy theories after this, people would sink their teeth into his bullshit like no one's business.
  11. Interested in this card from top to bottom tbh, even if just to hate. Rollins switching could be genius - or he could be horribly underused. I think Orton vs Reigns sounds like absolute dogshit. ADR beating DZ is just a slap in the fucking nuts to smarks and fans all over the "universe." Stephanie Mcmahon is rocking the milf look like no one's business, idgaf about DB or "the demon" Kane. WTF are they doing to sandow? I don't know, and I dont care. Ball dropped with the MITB fuck-up/over, and i think this is just another step down the ladder (i hope im wrong)

    Oh and Bray Wyatt + Microphone is worth watching RAW for by itself. Just not with the commercial breaks and inability to skip forward.
  12. Meltzer has news and exclusives, no question. And even some sources in wrestling. He proved it.

    But the thing is, people are paying to him to read SOMETHING, so he has to give them something. And so, there are many days in the year where there are just SLOW ASS news days, so he just makes up these "news" and types some "mr. obvious" reports or "news" like this, so he can "satisfy" his paying customers. He just has to give them something. I mean, this report on 411 is a classic "may or may not happen" Dave Meltzer. It's bullshit that someone is actually paying to this guy to get "news" like these, but people being dumbasses and sheep isn't anything new.
  13. Sad but true. This terrible TMZ world we live in.
  14. This show should be good.

    Can't wait to see who'll Sandow portray now. I'd be ROFL if he came out as Brock Lesnar... and then the real Lesnar comes out and beats the shit outta him. lol
    Anyways, whatever Sandow does tonight, I'm sure I'll be entertained. He's a helluva lot better than that thing that parties all the time.
  15. Seth Rollins,Evolution, The Shield, Wyatt Family. Is basically what I'm looking for
  16. Am I the only one who thinks we're gonna get a surprise Lesnar appearance? I mean he showed up the night after Payback and then didn't show up again until the Raw after MITB last year. And this is Brock's hometown, so he can show up and declare himself WWE World Heavyweight Champion if Daniel Bryan is indeed stripped of the title tonight as reports are saying that's gonna happen. I know he obviously doesn't give a shit about big pops, but he'll probably get one anyway
    Damn it, I've been posting on Brazilian wrestling forums and I was just ranting with a friend about how many marks who believe every word Meltzer says, treat his star ratings like they're law and some want Justin Gabriel to be pushed to the main event/Morrison to return and win the belt. I'm serious. Good grief these people
